About Us

OUR HISTORY
In 1972, Reverend James W. Kendell, pastor of the First Christian Church, along with a group of local church members, civic organizations, and many local individuals invested their time and resources into creating the Meals On Wheels of Winter Haven program. The program was later relocated to our present location at 620 6th Street NW. MOW is a non-profit corporation, chartered by the State of Florida.

Our Mission at Meals on Wheels of Polk County shall be to provide hot, nutritionally balanced meals and a daily contact to the homebound residents of the Polk County area. Our program provides a means of independence for many of our senior citizens – in some cases, it is a means of survival. MEALS ON WHEELS, INC., is a non-profit organization, actively supported by churches, civic organizations, businesses, and hundreds of active volunteers and residents throughout the Polk County Area. Thank you to The Rays Community Fund Grant Program who provided $5,000 assistance to enhance and support Meals on Wheels of Polk County as we continue to deliver meals to the homebound. The Rays focused on providing support to our community in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Donations are very much appreciated on our website, by mail or phone. Thank you RAYS for providing a bright spot in a difficult time.
